In reference to drugs, that would mean we as US citizens would have a legal right to buy, use, sell, and outright possess a certain amount of an illicit drug without penalty. Being that cocaine is addictive and destructive in large and repeated doses, I am against legalizing cocaine. The increased levels of ruthless behavior, overdoses, drug wars, and overall decline in the neighborhood across the country would be devastating. The inner cities would suffer an even greater decline in despair and hopelessness due to the streets being overly infested with open drug dealing. Although illegal activities occur on a daily basis, I think if cocaine was legal, people would be dying in the streets.
Not only are these crimes becoming violent and involving money, guns, and sex, but also murder. Financing these activities exceed national levels of debt; Worldometers real time world statistics reports that $329,576,150,900 and counting have been spent on illegal drugs this year (Worldometers Statistics, 2012) The amplitude of this problem has become out of reach for our neighbors, state and local drug agencies, Federal Drug Enforcement, national and transnational Security this problem has to be regulated, enforced
Having such a small amount of people possessing such a large amount of the wealth will pull down society. Our biggest private employer, Walmart, the “Union-busting low-wage retail empire happens to have generated a $200 billion family fortune”, while, not even paying their workers a living wage. People having accumulated all this wealth then use it to pay off politicians to vote and write bills in their favor. America would be better off with the upper class being flushed out of our system.
In these cities the city law writes that marijuana crimes should not necessarily be enforced, just like how a cop on duty wouldn’t stop in the middle of a street to give a parking ticket. All works out pretty well in these situations so why aren’t more cities adopting these new rules? Well the answer is more complex then you or me will ever know. It is proven that the illegality of this simple plant has more politics and corruption surrounding it than almost anything. Weed was pretty much made illegal to try to prosecute Mexicans that came over in our country many years ago before when Mexicans were the main users of the stuff.
Society in our world is used to seeing people take legal drugs (like cigarettes or alcohol) because they are allowed to be taken in public places. Illegal drugs, on the other hand, make you an outsider of society (except to drug junkies, who will see you as their best friend).The people in the New World get soma for free because it is, as already mentioned, all ordered and offered by the government. In comparison to that you have to pay for drugs in our world, and most of them have expensive prices that are only affordable to people with enough money. Legal drugs, however, aren’t as expensive as the illegal ones. This has the consequence that many people have to commit crimes and go into prostitution to buy the drugs they depend on.
Drug Abuse today affects many people in many places; it tears apart families, countries and even leading to war. It is a major problem within our society, affecting even the most innocent of people. Marijuana alone creates economic and moral issues within the United States. Just one example: over 100 million people above the age of 12 admitted to using marijuana alone at least once in their life that was 40.01 percent of the surveyed people. If such a large percentage of people have used illegal drugs it causes the need for two questions: How many of these people go to prison per year?
Athletes believe legal muscle enhancers should be allowed because they are sold in everyday stores. Not only are they sold in legal places of business but the government permits them to be legal and able to use. Using steroids should be outlawed all together. Possessing legal muscle enhancers is something no one can get in trouble for. Some of baseball members, and there fans believe that using these muscle enhancers and steroids will ruin the game of baseball forever.
The use of drugs such as cocaine, crack, heroin and marijuana has been proved to cause unbelievable damage and harm to the body and brain. In the Article “Info Facts-Heroin” reports that thousands of heroin addicts die from overdoses each year and heroin users are also at great risk of getting aids from the use of unclean needles. By legalizing drugs every one would have the right to consume drugs without any restrictions which would lead hospitals to be more filled, more school dropouts would occur, and more crack babies raise the stakes of legalizing drugs. Knowing what drugs do to users has been the solid basis for my saying no to drugs and why I believe they should not be
This could have a huge affect on the current war on drugs. The war on drugs will continue because apparently the big drug dealer can not be caught. Drugs are going to continue in the states simply because some people do not have jobs and each of these individuals sells drugs to try and make money. If the war on drugs does not be controlled then a lot of things could happen and make the world go down tremendously. Today in our society if drugs are not off the street our younger generations will began to sell it and use it too.
They believe by continuing to fight the so called “war on drugs”, the U.S. government has worsened these problems of society instead of alleviating them. They also state that drug prohibition is the true cause of much of the social and personal damage that has historically been attributed to drug use. It is prohibition that makes these drugs so valuable. Nearly 40 years and some 40 million arrest later, drugs are cheaper, more potent and far more widely used than at the beginning of this futile crusade, at the cost of tens of billions of dollars every year. How much more evidence does Washington need.
